Since January, we have sent over 310 books to detainees! For many, the simple gift of receiving a book is enough to lift ones spirit. All of a sudden, they have something that was sent just for them. They have a belonging that was given, not taken, and they can finally escape the walls of the detention center to imagine a life beyond. For many, it’s a welcomed distraction.
2017 has been a record year for us. We’ve received more requests for books than we have funds! Will you help the work continue? Donate now and your money will ensure that books continue to change the narrative of men detained at Stewart Detention Center.

NOTE: Stewart Detention Center will not accept books that have been sent from individuals. Thus, we must raise money so that we can purchase the books and have them shipped directly from the publisher.
